good morning. it is monday may 18th 2015. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead including senator lindsey graham right here in studio 57 with the newest victory in iraq and the newest on a possible presidential run, but first here's an "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the train got to philadelphia. when it got to the curve it slowed dramatically. >> anyone who wants to mess with waco. >> we did have a hard landing incident here today. we had one death. >> both isis and iraqi officials say they have fallen. >> the vast majority of the country thinks that war is not worth it and they're trying to work it out and they're having
8:01 am
difficulty. >> dean potter lost his life on saturday as well as graham hunt. >> they're following her whereabouts just in case she gets too close. >> patriots owner robert kraft claims tom brady played no part. >> you know it's another great question and i admire your passion. i know my wife does too. >> i didn't know gisele talks about me. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by walgreens. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah oh dochblt amtrak is running train this morning between new york and philadelphia for the first time this week. that important link on the busiest route was broken by tuesday night's crash that killed eight passengers. >> funerals are scheduled today for three of those victims. service at the crash site resumed the morning with an automatic control system now in place. that system is designed to slow down trains that are going too
8:02 am
fast. >> reporter: iraq's government is working to reklain the key city of ramadi from isis. militants reportedly killed at least 500 people and forced another 8,000 to leave. video released by isis appears to show i kary soldiers retreating from ramadi in defeat. plans for a defensive are reportedly in the works. lindsey graham criticized president obama's plan. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is really significant and i think for people who followed the iraq war very closely, anbar province more than 1, 300 u.s. troops lost their lives there. what is going on? >> anbar province is where the sunnis live and this is a blow to political affiliation. if you're a zirnt, you can't believe the government is not defending you. what is going on we withdrew
8:03 am
our forces too soon and the forces have melted down and isis has a foothold throughout the mid east. >> what do we need to do now, senator? you told norah back on "face the nation" a while ago, 10,000 troops are going to be needed on the ground. >> more. >> did you say war? >> more. >> more. >> we need more trainers, more advisers, more iraqi security force units that can degrade and destroy isil inside of iraq. we don't have enough military presence to change the tide of that. >> what's your definition of more? >> somewhere around 10,000 is my number i keep coming back to. i think bob gates has a different number. you need trainers at the battalion level. somewhere around 10,000 troops is what general keen says we would need to build capacity to allow the iraqi security forces
8:04 am
to not only take back anbar but defeat mosul. >> we don't want them in this battle? >> i hope not because if shiite militias can drive them out, i believe you're going -- at the end of the day you're in a pickle here. the longer we train them to be a national army the more influence iran has. to drive them out of iraq you have to deal with syria. if you don't deal with syria, they'll keep coming across the border. it's a complete mess. the most likely place for america to get attacked from i think, is syria. two of your fellow colleagues have been asked whether we should go in. is it because iraq is back in
8:05 am
the news? we heard secretary gates say with bob schieffer he's not very impressed by some of foreign policy answers. >> i think the question is did we make a blunder here to create the problems as we see it. if we had left iraq alone, would we be okay. >> you keep coming back to that. >> i agree. 9/11 was two years before iraq. radical islamism was back before 9/11 not one aide went to afghanistan. this is a religious war, but going into iraq if i know now what -- then what i know now, would i have launched a ground invasion probably not. but that's yesterday's thinking. what do we do today and tomorrow and the day after. we have to reset iraq. >> it's interesting. marco rubio or jeb bush -- jeb
8:06 am
bush has come around but marco couldn't reach that point. even if we knew then what we know now, we wouldn't have done it. >> hem needed to go but if i knew the intelligence was faulty, i'd reconfigure. but at the end of day, he'd be going. i'm worried about an attack on home land. here's a question for us. should one more american soldier die while in the service in iraq or going into syria. my concern is more american soldiers will die in iraq eventually in syria to pro e text our homeland. >> on friday you said there's a 99.99% chance you're going to make a run for the plt. you know how your mom says there's no time like the present? we offer you this beautiful platform. >> it is a beaut platform but
8:07 am
i'll make it in south carolina. you're all welcome to come and spend money when you do it. >> may i ask you a question? >> yes, sir. >> are you running because you look at the field and -- >> that's a very good question. i've got a very dpormtable life. i'm running because of what you see on television. i'm running because i think the world is falling apart. i've been more right than wrong. it's not the fault of others or their lack of this or that that makes me want to run. it's my ability in my own mabld to be a good commander in chief and make washington work. the reason i've had six primary opponents is because i've been accused of working with democrats too much. in my view they work together too little and i would try to change that when i got to be president and when it came to islam, i'd want to go after them before they come after us. >> seems like you have a little

8:34 am
in my view but how they're used needs to be changed. i think that we need to be able to use them as forward air controllers or spotters for our aircraft. we need to have trainers embedded probably down to the battalion level in the iraqi security forces. but i would say also with the anbar tribes and with the kurds and we need to provide more opportunities for our special forces. >> what does that mean? >> to be able to operate behind the lines in iraq and in support of what the iraqi security forces are doing. i think the idea of t he battle is going to have be be carried out by themselves it's fundamental, i agree with that but ily are things we can do that would make our help more
8:35 am
effective. >> can i ask you, secretary gates. i was struck that over the past months more than 165 air strikes were conducted on ramadi troops. that's a lot of air strikes. >> i think what it shows is air strikes can certainly help but they don't really change the situation on the ground in a fundamental way. they are an important aspect of a military campaign, but you can't do it all just by air power. and so does that say something about the failure of u.s. strategy against isis. it's driven by the air. that's mostly what we're doing is air strikes. >> i think it goes back to what i was saying. how we use the limited number of ground forces that we have in iraq needs to be changed. >> what do you think we can learn from this weekend? >> i think that it's a reminder that we have a long way to go with the iraqi security forces and that you know even though we can have some tactical
8:36 am
successes like killing isis leader, that doesn't change the overall situation on the ground. and fundamentally we're going to have to figure out a better way or a faster and bigger way to help the iraqi security forces. >> let's talk about iran. negotiations are going on about nuclear weapons but first lindsey graham was just here and he said what they ought to do in syria is get 100,000 troops from arab countries on the ground in syria and get a of power, transitioned out perhaps. but what's essential is 100,000 troops from arab countries. is that feasible? >> not in my view. i think that -- i was going to say that getting 100,000 arab troops in syria is a lot easier said than done and, you know the arabs have no experience fighting together. if we've learned one thing it's the importance of integrated
8:37 am
training and working together in these things. you know, the truth is in 1991 during the gulf war, most of the fighting was done by the u.s. and the british. the others playing a contributing role but the fact is that get 1g 00,000 100,000 arabs to come in is a tall order. >> just because we have this deadline coming on and we saw last week these leaders in duffel countries meet with the leaders at camp david. they're deeply concerned about any sort of deal with iran. i heard and i know charlie heard they felt like they never spent six hours alone. they fell re'sured on a number of fronts. what do you think happens with the iran deal? >> first of all it's a sad commentary they thought to themselves in the seventh year of presidency, gee, we should have done this a long time ago.

this is pretty late in coming. i think that it probably was successful, but we'll see what happens subsequently. i don't think -- my guess is that there are concerns about an iranian nuclear capability were not much alleviated. >> i saw you on "face the nation." you said you frankly weren't impressed on the foreign policy candidates. does that include hillary clinton who you worked with? >> i was asked about the republican candidates. i'm disappoint thad secretary clinton has not spoken out in favor of the trade agreements, for examplet the trade authority that the president is seeking is very important to us not just economically but politically in terms of our skurpt.ecurity. on the republican side they have jobs that don't inform foreign policy and i told bob schieffer over time their positions will be fleshed out and become better. >> do you think it's possible to
8:39 am
have a nuclear deal that will meet your conditions? >> i think that based on the deal that we're having that the deal as it appears now has some serious shortcomings. my hope is those can be addressed this month and next month in any kboeshnegotiations. it has to do with the posting, the verifications, big issues. >> secretary gates, always nice to have you with us. "duty" is now available in papeback. as we reported, the whitney museum moved to a gleaming new building along the hudson riverfront and we got a tour of the inaugural exhibit for sunday morning. if you didn't see it what it took to create this new home. what did it cost to build this museum?
8:40 am
>> altogether around $400 million. it's a lot of money but they're complicated to build. unlike apartment buildings and office buildings you make one shape and add another. err floor has to be different out of necessity. the lighting systems have to be custom designed. we're building and building. if you think about this it's amortized over 100 years. we're building for history, we're building for duration. this is something that should be here for generations to come. so you want something that's well built and something that will stand the test of time. >> how has american art changed? >> well it keeps surprising us. you know at the turn of the century or as we're doing pajts on the walls and sculptures that sat on pedestals and now art can be almost anywhere of any

8:47 am
since "maxim" launched and it was time to reflect the times we're living in. >> it's the number one men's magazine. >> absolutely. >> why does it need to evolve? >> i think we're experimenting with the evolution but i think we live in a really different world than we lived in 20 years ago and celebrating sexiness is at the essence of the brand. we're not going to change that. but i think we can experiment with how we show sexiness. i think it's best evidenced in the covers. it close tight crop. it was really about her eyes. it can be someone's laugh the look in their eyes. we're exploring that. >> when i'm looking at the page i can't tell how she laughs and i think for a lot of people people will still lwomen on the covers. are you worried about losing some of your core or are you

bringing them along? >> we're bringing them along. since the reband, we invited readers to participate in an online surface, 70%. just shy of, 69%, say they prefer the redesign. >> i think it's sexy. >> absolutely, slum it's smart sexy alluring in the sense of -- it's almost like she's listening to what you're saying. >> like you say, that is sexy. also our audience is driven smart, confident, and so they're attracted to women who are just a driven smart, confident. >> but let's talk about you coming from a women's magazine background to be the head of the most popular man's magazine. what was it like when you walked into the newsroom. how did it come about you were there? >> such an unlikely choice. >> very unlikely choice indeed. i think they were starting in a new direction. the evolution started. they were compile gragt team. the players were sort of already
